Subject:Japanese vase - studio?
Posted By: Melissa Fuller-Gustavel Sun, Feb 17, 2019 IP: 2605:a000:122c:437:6

I am having trouble finding the maker of this vase. Any help would be appreciated!

The item looks like mass produced export satsuma of late Meiji/Taisho period. The mark resembles fukagawa mark but not exactly the same.
Others more knowledgeable might clarify.

The "made in Japan" dates this Satsuma ware vase at least 1930's.
The Mount Fuji with stream above it looks like a Fukagawa mark, but it is not. Fukagawa didn't make Satsuma ware and certainly not this kind of decorations.
Probably made by a small family workshop, of which there were many in that period before WW2.
